The Civility Pledge of Lord Roitan
*raises right hand*
I pledge to conduct myself, in word and deed, with courage, honor, respect and integrity.
I pledge myself, in word and deed, to generosity of spirit in my affirmative support of the individuals in our lifestyle community.
I pledge to assist those who are new without expectation of any return.
I pledge my respect for the chosen path and opinions of each individual even if they differ from my own.
I pledge myself to generosity of spirit in my affirmative support of the organizations, clubs and events in our lifestyle community.
I pledge that if I believe myself to have been offended by, or am drawn into disagreements with, individuals or groups that I will work towards reconciliations through words and deeds that will reflect my commitment to courage, honor, integrity, and respect.
I pledge that if such disagreements should arise, I will directly address those, and only those, who are involved. I will be open and honest with them.
I will keep in mind that it is better to build up than to tear down; better to reconcile than to bear grudges; better to seek an understanding of those with whom I disagree than to impose my will upon them.
I pledge to use the internet with the same courage, honor, integrity, courtesy, and respect that I would use in my face to face interactions.
I am Lord Roitan, and I have taken the civility pledge.
